Overcurrent protection on TT -Recall

I received a recall notice on my travel trailer. The problem "The electric circuit from the battery to converter does not have overcurrent protection. If a short circuit would occur the unprotected circuit could overheat resulting in fire etc..."

I think: the only time current flows from the converter to the battery is when the 120 ac is active, to recharge the battery. When running on 12 volt dc the converter is not activated.

In the power panel the diagram shows the ac feed to the converter and the converter distribution to the dc fuses. One of those fuses is 40 amp and is labeled "reverse battery protection fuse"

looks to me the recall to my trailer is not required.?????

But the wire from the battery to the converter is not protected.

Your recall notification

Just wondering, what model TT do you own? My gut instinct is to have the trailer checked by the dealer anyway.

195rb. I am having trouble finding a Jayco dealer that will take me in for the fix in a reasonable time.

It's possible a non-Jayco dealer can do the recall work, but you'd first have to check with Jayco to have it authorized.
